We would like to say how very proud we all are to have had 15 members representing our branch this summer at Bishop Burton (Tetratrathlon) and then Cholmondeley Castle (Show Jumping and Mounted Games).This is such a major achievement for these members, who were competing with other branches from England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland. These events were extremely competitive and of a very high standard.Thanks to all these members for performing so well and their families for taking the time and effort to support them.

Recent Achievements by current members – We would just like to say how proud we are of the recent achievements of EKHPC Pony Club members in their own particular fields,but feel it is better that this website is reserved for Pony Club achievements only.
